Keeping the Elderly physically active

Only 18% of men and 19% of women aged 55-64 undertake the recommended amount of regular aerobic and muscle-strengthening exercise.

Strength work is such an important part in elderly training. The stronger a person stays the more active & confident they become. A fitness study using a group of elderly people participated in strength training for 12 weeks, this showed an average increase of 32% for muscle fibre and a 30% increase in strength. Imagine what you could do with almost a third extra strength!
